This one is bonafide 5 star action. The best thing about this show was that EVERYONE got in the show. There were miracles everywhere. A bunch of locals bought a bunch of tickets thinking they could sell them for $$$ - ha ha! Didn't work out that way. Jer was visibly upset after Bob started Good Lovin, didn't want it to stop!
But do download the other copy - this one does not have the complete 20 minute Fire on the Mountain. YES, 20 MIN. FOTM!!!!
The may be the last EPIC outdoor Dead show.....

I have to say that aside from a few 1994 shows, I just can't really get into the 90s sound...it's too electronic, antiseptic.

What you should know about this show is there is a standout Jack Straw in the beginning, a fine Walkin' Blues (then again I always like Walkin Blues), and a scorching, massive 31 minute Scarlet Fire. Download the Jack Straw and Scarlet Fire first, then if you really like em, download the rest, but be warned that I think the rest of the show is not very good.

An extra note on the Scarlet Fire: The 1:00 of transition jam before Fire is really, really glorious. It's like a whole new song in itself and is very hard to get out of your head once you've heard it. Enjoy!

Fun times and great shows. I will always remember these two Bonner Springs shows with fondness. Boppin’ through the first set. Comes A Time. 104 degrees. Kansas. Sunflowers. Trees bending eastward. 100+ deadheads camped at the rest area along I-70 between KC and Denver. Yes.

had to get this one. had the other night and the second set looked tasty and WAS. Comes a time out of space, are you kidding me???? Love this period of the band, and this show is another gem
Reviewer: morst - - December 25, 2004
Subject: This version is missing the between-songs sound
after Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again, one can hear Garcia play the riff from Reuben & Cherise before the band settles in on Jed. This "tuning" is missing on the version posted here.

Great sound, but it was a great sounding show with Dan Healy mixing, so go figure!
Reviewer: JosiahB - - November 22, 2004
Subject: MICKEY & the BEAM!!!!
This entire show is a scorcher, and the band's contribution has been documented already by the others who've posted.

Now, after my first few shows, I must admit that drumz became sort of a mid second-set setbreak for me, as I sort of felt a "seen one drumz..." type apathy (aside from the occasional rocker).

That being said, I'd like to draw your attention to the downright horrifyingly scary beamwork during the first couple minutes of d2t5!!!! The sound quality and Left/Right separation are superb as the sound pans back & forth, and Mickey works the beam first in a something-chasing-you-through-the-jungle type horror show, and then proceeds to build to an enormous tidal wave that crashes over you at about 4:20 into the track, and washes out over the crowd... It's as good as that part of drumz/space ever gets!! (IMHO)

Please, do yourself a favor, throw on a good pair of headphones & give it a listen.

Subject: Editing Version
This version of the show (bootleg CD) is edited. It's missing the 2nd verse to FOTM and it is also missing most of the tuning from between th songs. I have a complete version that is over 20 minutes longer. I'm going to circulate it today. It should be up here evry soon..cm

of this show it was so hot. I only had the second set but I must have listened to it 1000 times. The Scarlet>Fire is indeed excellent but I would like to pimp the Goin Down the Road as a personal favorite of mine. When Bruce gets going in the middle of the song, you can almost hear the stage elevating as each band member raises their intensity. Simply amazing...

This is one of the best shows since that 1977 genere of show. I downloaded this by mistake, and was entralled when I listened to it. S>F aside, and it is great... check out the Jackstraw and Sugaree...A+...plus the sound is an A
Reviewer: BlackPeter - - July 14, 2004
Subject: smokin......
Yup-

I agree, i dont know if this is one of the best Scarlet>Fires ever, but i believe it is the best "transition" ive ever heard since the 70's...
everybody knows the BEST part of ScarletFire is the funked out transition that everyone KNOWS is comin (its kinda like the peak in the ChinaRider jam).

In the 80's and 90's the transitions from Scarlet to Fire got shorter and shorter, basically, the jam was taken out of the process. I guess they were getting tighter with certain songs (although Eyes was getting looser, just look at those download lentghs)

This show is a complete flashback to the mid 70's, although not quite on the Cornell level, which was a freak of nature, its arguably the best transition Ive heard since then. It was 105 degress that day and Jerry was in the red shorts, always the fashion icon. For whatever reason the whole band, following Jerry's lead, just snaked it, and snaked it and snaked it until it slipped into Fire, and then a HUGE pre-vocal jam.

Also, notable: the nice MIDI touch in the transition in Hamilton in 90, Jerry was very creative with that and his bandmates picked RIGHT up on it.

AND, London 1990, Halloween i think, but right before Fire in the Scarlet jam, a complete CHANGE in key. Its something ive never heard beofore or since. Those of you who are tapeheads like me will know EXACTLY what im talking about.

God Bless You Jerry-
your sunshine will always be on my sholders

Subject: Great second set
I listened to Barton Hall on my way to work this morning to see if I was off my rocker to feel the way I did about this show and realized that Jerry's playing style was so different that it is tough to compare. Copout I know. That being said the 26 minute Scarlet-Fire that opens this second set is an absolute scorcher. Best I have heard from this era. Truckin-Smokestack is short but well played. Soulful He's Gone and Comes a Time. I never had the first set on tape so I gave it a quick listen last night and it seems that the levels are a little out of whack, espically on Bobby, but the energy seems to be there that is consistant throughout the second. The four stars is for the overall show, but the second set is the reason to download this.
